The Spider Project



Mosquitoes transmit diseases [that] will kill... roughly 1 in every 17 people currently alive on this planet.... The gist of the mosquito problem [is] not... that the insect has become better adapted to the modern world, but rather that the world has become much more accommodating to the mosquito... While mankind had driven thousands of species on this planet toward extinction by destroying their habitats....the detritus of the late-20th-century civilization ... now constitutes the ideal breeding site for the mosquito. ... To date, the problem ... is predominantly a Latin American one... 14
